Scott Crawford "Spoke: Images And Stories From The 1980s Washington, DC Punk Scene" - Book

The Washington, DC, punk music scene of the 1980s gave birth to influential bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, and Fugazi. Here that era is portrayed in its purest form: an oral history by the creators themselves, including nearly 200 photographs capturing the power and spirit of this politically progressive corner of American underground music. Compiled by Scott Crawford - whose critically acclaimed film Salad Days provided an unprecedented exploration into the 1980s DC punk scene - "Spoke" delves deeper into one of the most dynamic movements in US music history.
